It seems that it appears for every mail sent over's nntp

According to one of the postings' headers:

.... it looks like the MDA or MUA for user <> at with a MAILESSENTIALS/Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.2966)
(what else did you expect?) instead of (just) dropping the mails into the
users' mailbox re-routes the mail to the mailing list.

Can I ask the responsible person to contact about this or
remove the eMail address from the mailing list otherwise?
